Product Description

The moments and hours after JFK's tragic assassination were some of the most formative and important for our country, but the true story has rarely, and only partially, been told. For the first time, using never-before-seen transcripts only recently made public, this film pieces together the 24-hour period after the shots were fired. The timeline reveals startling new information about the death of the president and the traumatic transfer of power to his successor, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. From new details about when JFK really died, to the truth behind LBJ's Oath of Office photo on Air Force One, THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION: 24 HOURS AFTER uncovers an unfamiliar story born out of one of the most crucial days in American history.

The transfer of power -- some still call it a coup d'état - when JFK was murdered and the 40 minutes before LBJ took office and then the following turbulent 24 hours, still fascinates with its many reverberating questions and expressions of mutual distrust. The true story of the violent transition has only been partially told. Now, with never-before-seen transcripts only recently made public, startling new information about the death of the president including new details about when JFK actually died and the truth behind Vice President Johnson's famous oath of office photo on Air Force One can be shown. Who was really in charge? This is a great documentary -- dramatic, compelling, almost Shakespearean in its unfolding.

This is an excellent historical review of what happened in the hours following the Kennedy Assassination. This would have a very grounding effect on anyone who was too young, or not yet born, in the early 1960's. This documentary presents the facts of what occurred and the play out of those events on a personal level for both the Kennedy and Johnson families before the blurring effects of Camelot took root. It also shows what can happen when a personal tragedy collides with the running of Government and the confusion that occurs as a result.

This documentary is excellently produced and priced. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know what happened during the 24 hours after the Kennedy Assassination and how the personalities of those involved played out.

Interesting on the surface. But as one gets toward the conclusion you find it's real point of view is to bolster Lyndon Johnson's standing in the minds of the American public. His manipulation of events on Air Force One is acknowledged, thankfully, but his back at Washington movements is given a damned if you do-damned if you don't slant. What is not acknowledged is that Johnson was on the brink of being arrested and having his whole political career flushed down the toilet right before the assassination took place or that he was going to be thrown off the ticket in the upcoming election. To those who think that Johnson was in on the "shenanigans", the section of Johnson at Parkland being kept in the dark as to what was going on will seem ludicrous. For a program that deals with the 24 hr period after the assassination, minute by minute and hour by hour, the controversial autopsy is barely mentioned. I did find one of the on camera interviewees smiling and beaming as he talked about Kennedy's death jarring until the final moments when I realized that this was practically a tribute to Lyndon Johnson, who I paraphrase) "did the best he could under trying circumstances". They promote his approval rating while the country was grieving together at an astounding 79% etc etc but basically lay blame on Johnson's standing in history in that he wasn't Kennedy. No other explanation is explored. The History Channel in the last few years seem to be on a Johnson kick. They pulled the last THREE episodes of THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY at the behest of the Johnson family. Maybe this program was their atonement for daring to air that final episode of THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY. Who knows...?

As the title suggests, this DVD covers the first 24 hours after JFK was assassinated. The events are shown in chronological order; first in minutes, then hour sections. The historians/authors constantly put their own spin on the presentation of facts for dramatic purposes, which detracts from the program. It is therefore not presented, overall, in an objective fashion. They try and go inside Robert Kennedy's and Lyndon Johnson's heads and surmise what they were thinking at different points in time.

It opens at thirty minutes before the assassination. It shows the famous "Zapruder film" footage and the race to Parkland Hospital and events therein. The narration is inter-cut with voiceover's by Secret Service men and Lady Bird Johnson. The program shows the large amount of confusion and shock that was occurring, thereafter. The one who comes shining through all of the events is First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy. She leaned over and covered her husband's body after arrival at the hospital. The only time she left his side was when JFK was in the OR. Johnson is finally told at 1:10 PM was has happened to JFK. The fact the Secret Service men and JFK advisors had to basically "steal" JFK's casket in order to leave the hospital is like a "dark comedy", which sadly was true. After that the anger, tension and bad blood between Lyndon Johnson and Robert Kennedy is shown. It is this section and that relationship that contains the most drama, speculation and conjecture by the historians of the show. They state everything as fact, but it is more POV pushing.

In the end, the best part of the program was the information gleaned from the notes by respected historian, William Manchester from 1964-1965 generated originally for his tome, "The Death of a President: November 1963". A book that hopefully will be re-printed over the next few years as the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination draws near.

This is a lot of new information presented in a very interesting format. As the assassination unfolds, a clock ticks and the viewer gets a real feel for how it all played out. Had to have this after catching only part of it on the History Channel.
